Need an easy and fast way to make gloves for a costume? Mf(x) of the Crash Culture blog created a tutorial designed for anyone afraid of making gloves for the first time or anyone looking for a faster way. Her instructions work best with 4-way stretch knits like spandex and vinyl. The first step is tracing your hand and arm onto card stock or any thick paper. If you want elbow length gloves, trace to your elbow.
2. Cut a large rectangle of fabric. Cut 2 for each glove, one if you are using the modified pattern.
3. Iron-on tear-away! That stuff I use in every stretch tutorial. Iron it onto the wrong side of each piece of fabric. Put your fabric together, right sides facing, sandwiched in between the tear away.
4. Trace pattern onto the tear away with a pencil.
5. Sew on the line. Don’t close the wrist.
